Min rejse for at blive kunstner var spændende, men ikke en indlysende: Jeg startede med forretning, der førte mig til design, for endelig at opdage kunst. 

Det hele startede i Danmark

Art has always fascinated me and it has always been a part of my life up through my academic career, but I started painting and drawing in my late 30-ies, in 2018. I live in Denmark with my Danish partner. Once when we went to visit my parents, he discovered my very very old paintings and drawings my Mom framed in my old childhood room. And for my next birthday I woke up to the best birthday surprise ever: an easel, paint, canvases and brushes; everything I needed to start to paint again. Since then I have been going for different courses, working with different artists and soon after started selling my artworks. 

In January 2020 I took a big jump and publicly called myself “an Artist” on social media, started displaying my artworks. About 2 months later I was selected as one of the Artists of the Year 2020 in the yearly art exhibition at Kolding Storcenter. That was a big moment for me: out of more than 80 applicants, only 8 of us were selected for the exhibition. Since then I have been exploring different artistic mediums and establishing myself as an artist. It’s a fantastic journey of self-discovery. 

Min kunst

Jeg arbejde mest med landskaber. Jeg er meget fascineret af det vand, der er rundt omkring mig her i Danmark, og især her i Kolding. Mine vandmalerier udtrykker mine følelser og stemninger: undertiden stormfulde hav; andre gange rolige, fine sommerdage.

I min kunst er jeg også fascineret af mennesket. Jeg arbejder mest med portrætter og croquis. Croquis på fransk betyder ‘en skitse’. Det er en tegneteknik udført på en nøgenmodel.

For mig er mine croquis-tegninger en form for personlig frisættelse. Jeg er opvokset i et katolsk land, under kommunistiske tider, i en kultur, hvor nøgenhed var noget man undgik; noget skamfuldt og syndigt. Jeg blev befriet for det med kunst. Mine tegninger repræsenterer sårbarheden, modet og skønheden i hver eneste af os.
